James Stirling: Michael Wilford
James Stirling (1920-1992) was one of the most influential figures of contemporary architecture. From the 1950s on - later in cooperation with his partner Michael Wilford, born in 1938 - Stirling conceived numerous projects in which a historic sensibility was combined with a creative architectural vocabulary. The practice achieved wide renown with the designs for the Stuttgart State Gallery, The London Tate Gallery extension, and the Braun Headquarters in Melsungen. In 1981, Stirling was awarded the Pritzker Prize. Since Michael Wilford's heading of the practice, projects like Temasek Polytechnic in Singapore or the British Embassy in Berlin have drawn considerable attention. This monograph offers a comprehensive survey of the oeuvre of both architects.
